This soup was delicious! A cozy Fall or Winter meal. My family really enjoyed it. I did use ground sausage for the meatballs and only one bag of spinach. There did seem to be too much pasta, super thick with it, so I would suggest only using 1 cup, maybe 1 1/4 cup. Also, it was very garlicky, so I would cut back on that a bit. It smells delicious!
I make a version of this all the time. Being an Italian-American from Boston everyone makes this. I always put torn bread soaked in milk into my meatballs. Also, I never add the pasta to the soup directly unless it is to be consumed in one sitting. I cook ditalini, small shells, elbows on the side and add them to the individual bowls. And lots of grated cheese! I usually have home made stock as well.
The meatballs were good, but there was either too much pasta or too little broth even though I tried to follow the recipe exactly. Mine turned out super thick, not like soup at all. I think next time I will try it with a lot more liquid or a lot less pasta.
We love this soup. It's very hearty. I took it to a soup exchange party and it was a hit. I did add additional broth the second day when I reheated it. I shared this recipe and a friend made it using kale instead of spinach and half the amount.

Excellent soup, my entire family loved it. I reduced the amount of spinach to 10 oz. and cut back on the pasta to half the amount. The full amount of pasta made the soup too thick, but still delicious!
Very good recipe! I like the flavor of the lemon zest in the meatballs. It adds a subtle tang to the broth as well. I reduced the amount of spinach slightly, as I felt it was too much. And the parmesan garnish when serving is enjoyable. I will make this again.
I think it's great. I didn't change anything. I want to do it with bow ties this time instead of acini de pepe. Do you have an idea what would be a corresponding amount to put in (ex. maybe 2 cups instead of 1 cup of pasta)? Thanks.
Delicious soup! This recipe is easy to follow and I'll definitely make it again. Thank you for your recipe Christina!
